Welcome

 

Hello, and welcome to the website of the Robin Hood Aquarists, an aquatic club based in Nottingham.

Have you ever been a member of any of the fishkeeping clubs of Nottingham? If so we would like to hear from you! Whether it was the original or reformed Nottingham Aquarists, Hucknall & Bulwell Aquatic Society or a member of Robin Hood, please get in touch. We'd love to hear your old fishkeeping stories, so go to our contacts page and drop us an email!

2017 IS OUR 25th ANNIVERSARY YEAR

As part of our 25th anniversary celebrations, we will have the pleasure of the company of 3 sets of guest speakers at our monthly Monday night meetings. The speakers are Dr David Pool of FishScience (April), Aquascaper George Farmer (June) and from Mars Fishcare, Dr Donna Snellgrove and Tim O’Brine (September). For details of their topics and dates, please see the News and Calendar pages via the links above.

We run two auctions each year in the Spring and Autumn. Take a look at the events page for further details. Also check back regularly, as we will be updating the page with what items sellers will be bringing in the run up to the day. We will, again, be holding a raffle, tickets will be available throughout the day and the raffle will be held at the end of the auction. Many thanks to our sponsors for this, Fish Science, King British, JMC, TMC, Waterlife, Aquarian/API, Fishphilosophy and Coalville Aquatics.

The Events page also has the revised Code of Practice that we will be implementing at this auction and which all sellers will be required to adhere to. The code also includes great advice on buying fish at auctions, so is well worth a look, even if you aren’t selling. The Code of Practice can be also be found HERE.

We will continue to hold mini-auctions at the end of our Monday night club meetings, given the success of these since 2013. This is the opportunity for members to sell a few fish they've bred, stock they'd like to change, plants they've grown or food cultures. Visitors are welcome to bid on and buy items, but sellers must be full members of the club. Have a look at the calendar page for the dates of our regular club meetings and what's on each evening.

All visitors are most welcome to club evenings, just pop along. You are welcome to attend as a visitor for your first three meetings and then there is a one-off payment of £10 for a life- time membership, following acceptance into the club by the members. No monthly subs are charged.
